Target waste


Simple steps to target waste

  1. Determine how much waste you produce and plan to reduce it
    • Get weights of your rubbish and recycling being collected from your collection service provider
    • How much do you pay to have waste removed?
    • It is advisable to record and monitor the weight of waste being collected before you set up your waste reduction programme because this will give you a baseline to measure your progress against
  2. Carry out a waste audit
    • Measure the type and quantity of waste going to landfill
    • Determine what waste can be reduced, reused and recycled
  3. Separate waste and recycle
    • For commercial quantities
    • For domestic quantities
  4. Compost kitchen food waste through a collection or onsite
  5. Design out waste by developing new packaging, processes and products that reduce waste
